    If I resign from my job whilst on a 457 visa, is the employer still bound to pay for flights home? They don't want to agree to this in the deed of release but refer to complying with visa obligations.

    Hi! I was just recently terminated from employment. I am on a 457 visa. I wrote an email to me to our HR Manager but she hasn't replied yet. It has been 3 days and I have sent consecutive emails to follow up on my repatriation request. If the company continues to ignore my email, what other recourse do I have to get the repatriation. I really want to go back home soon but I want the company to shoulder it since it is part of their obligation. I am looking forward to your reply. I hope you can guide me in this process.

    I hold a 457 visa sponsored by an employer. I had quit the company last year and the employer had raised for cancellation with the Australian government. However, my visa status is ‘In Effect’ till date. I have now joined back the same company and the employer says – cancellation request is raised and therefore I will not be able to travel with same visa. Could you please advise if there is a way for my employer to withdraw his cancellation request?
    Thank you.

    Hi Sarah,

    Is the 1194 Form applicable for 457 Visa cancelation. Can I cancel this visa by myself or the employer has to do it?
    How do I know that when my partner visa is in effect after 457 visa is cancelled?

    Thank you
